“Excellent location, beautiful building”
Reviewed 26 March 2010

We stayed 3 nights in Catania, at Politi Residence. The hotel is right in the heart of the old city, a gorgeous building, very big rooms and beautiful panorama. Rooms are clean enough, but the bathroom could be better (old sanitary not very clean). Also in the rooms was cold, there was an air conditioner for heating very noisy and not very efficient. The manager of the hotel was very kind and polite. We had a great stay in Catania, a splendid city and a wonderfull area!!!!

Reviewed 30 October 2009

The room was not cleaned thoroughly before our arrival since the floor was dirty. Bed linen very clean, but bed was very uncomfortable. Only 1 pillow per person was provided. Expresso coffee machine was mouldy and no washing up liquid or hand soap provided.

Stayed October 2009, travelled with friends

Reviewed 23 October 2009

As soon as we walked in the flat had a musky smell. The kitchen cupboards, crockery and cutlery were sticky and filthy. No cleaning soap /dish cloth as we would have washed up. The coffee espresso machine mouldy. The state of the shower cubicle was unbelievably filthy and even the wash hand basin. I wished that others who visited before us were more sincere.
